Children's Dentistry Chesapeake VA

Dr. Cappy Sinclair is a family dentist and cosmetic dentist in Virginia Beach VA. Starting regular visits to the dentist early will help teach your child healthy oral care habits that they will carry with them into adulthood. Parents are encouraged to bring their children to the dentist early so they can become familiar with a dental office setting.

Our staff makes every effort to ensure the comfort and safety of our young patients, helping them to develop confidence in their oral hygiene habits and to feel comfortable when they visit with us for routine care. Many of our adult patients have developed a fear of the dentist due to an event that occurred when they were younger and visited a dental office. We believe in using calm methods to help your child get acclimated to our surroundings to avoid fearing their dental appointments.

How To Prevent Pediatric Tooth Decay

One of the biggest challenges in children’s dentistry is preventing tooth decay. With routine visits to our Chesapeake, VA dentist office, Dr. Sinclair will be able to prevent tooth decay and subsequent dental cavities. We also offer dental sealants for children to protect teeth and prevent decay during the most vulnerable stages of your child’s development.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry estimates that over 50% of first-graders and 80% of 17-year-olds have cavities. It is very important to keep primary teeth (baby teeth) in place and healthy until they are lost naturally. Primary teeth are essential for maintaining good nutrition, allowing children to chew properly. Likewise, primary teeth are critical for proper speech development and help to promote good self-esteem.
